On 11/04/11 I had been 41 for about 6 month at that time. They say that it takes between 7-10 years most often of having PD for the visible symptoms to start showing up
which also means that by that point my brain had lost between 70-80% of its ability to produce Dopamine, the chemical the body uses to properly transport the information about movement,certain types of thinking and some autonomic functions like oh breathing, heart beat, swallowing, blinking just to name a few. So yeah that little chemical Dopamine that most associate with “feeling good” actually has a rather important function in the body. Who knew??? Certainly not I before 11/4/11. So please join me in celebrating April, Parkinson’s awareness Month. I usually try not to talk to openly about it unless im in my Journeys section or I’m in a foul mood and do a bit of word spillage on it but this month you will see a number of “Science Time” posts on PD. Hope all are well.

April – Parkinson’s Awareness Month:
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. World Parkinson’s Program has many ways for you to get involved in supporting our mission. Healthcare professionals can write a newsletter, and teach patients how to avoid falls, as fall prevention is our top priority. Others can forward our newsletter to their friends, open a chapter of World Parkinson’s Program, print and distribute our multilingual Parkinson’s literature, subscribe to our YouTube channel, or join us on Face Book, LinkedIn and Twitter:
Also note that World Parkinson’s Education Program is expanding the scope of its services beyond education and therefore is now called World Parkinson’s Program. The new website address of World Parkinson’s Program is http://www.pdprogram.org and new email address is email@example.com
World Parkinson’s Program completes five years of service to Global Parkinson’s Community ever since it was founded in 2008. The mission of World Parkinson’s Program is to improve the quality of life of patients with Parkinson’s as well as their caregivers through education and helping to give healthcare supplies, medical services and other resources to those directly or indirectly afflicted with this condition.
We also provide multilingual educational literature to reach various communities around the world. The philosophy of its founder, “Those who fight Parkinson’s with knowledge always find solutions” is the central theme of this program. This program provides education through literature and online resources in many languages to reach various communities around the world. Ability to reach different communities in various countries in their own languages makes this program unique and allows us to help improve the quality of life of people on a global scale.
